 Daryle Blankenship- 2004-State EMT

 

Lieutenant Daryle Blankenship

Florida EMT of the Year - 2004

 On April 2, 2004 while off-duty and preparing for a day of four-wheeling near the St. Johns River, Lieutenant Blankenship was faced with a sudden crisis.  A tour bus, filled with high school students on their way to Alabama, was sent careening off of S.R. 528 Beeline Expressway after being cut off by another vehicle.  The plunging of the bus was stopped by a stand of trees approximately 300 feet from where Daryle had parked his truck.

Lieutenant Blankenship immediately approached the bus.  The driver had been ejected from the vehicle and was seriously injured on the ground.  The kids on the bus were trying to climb out of its windows.  After initiating aid to the driver, he turned his attention to the students.  With the bus sitting in an unstable position, Daryle entered it and began calming and triaging patients.  He also moved uninjured passengers to another part of the bus, which helped to stabilize its position and reduce movement until the responding emergency units could arrive.

By the time emergency units arrived upon the scene, Lieutenant Blankenship had managed to triage most of the injured passengers, had temporarily stabilized the bus, had initiated treatment of the driver and other passengers and was able to pass medical and scene information to Brevard County Fire-Rescue responders.  Daryle remained an active part of the incident until the last patients were transported to the hospital.

Lieutenant Blankenship showed extroaordinary command presence throughout the incident.  His actions exemplify what our fire service employees are all about. We are extremely proud of his selection as the State of Florida's EMT of the Year in 2004.
